RIP Lux Interior
The best front man from the sickest band in the world has passed away.
Lux Interior, of The Cramps, passed away yesterday from heart problems.
Two of the best shows I've ever seen in my life were both Cramps shows. One at the old Lupos in Providence, and the other at The Channel in Boston. Both were packed to the roof, wild sweat inducing, real rock n roll. At The Channel, when a female fan lost her shirt in the pit, Lux dedicated the next song "to that girls Tits!!" At the Lupos show, while crawling around onstage, he stopped to refresh himself with a cold one , from the pumps he was wearing.
The whole time, the band screamed out it's brand of rock-n-shock-a-billy music at deafening pace.
The band was formed in the mid 70's by Lux and his wife Poison Ivy and has a fan base that stretches the entire globe.
